GE bot issues[edit source]

Oh, dear! (see here)

  1. Replaces LowAlc field with "last date" date
  2. Replaces price with new one instead of moving to "last price" field.

Please fix?

I found the error and fixed it. It would only happen on articles that have never been updated. ~Nightgunner5 talkTrans 21:16, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
That's good to hear! Cant wait to see GEbot updating like a fiend. --Rollback crown.svgAburnett001 {Talk} {#} 21:20, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

More Gebot stuff[edit source]

Ok, so after GEbot messed with all the lowalch fields, it hasn't fixed it. Can you teach it to detect these errors and repair them?


Rollback crown.svgAburnett001 {Talk} {#} 22:43, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

I've created (and tested :P) the function, so whenever GEBot updates a page that it messed up, it will fix the problem. Now all we have to do is wait. And set up the pages it added. ;) ~Nightgunner5 talkTrans 23:08, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
As usual, I ask, you deliver! Thanks- Rollback crown.svgAburnett001 {Talk} {#} 23:14, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

#2[edit source]

[1] - GE bot seems to be scared of teh commas. --Rollback crown.svgAburnett001 {Talk} {#} 02:05, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Tell GE bot "Thanks, I'm glad to help!" --Rollback crown.svgAburnett001 {Talk} {#} 16:55, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

#3[edit source]

Regarding this edit, it seems GEBot blanked the entire page and saved it. Care to look into it, pl0x? :) Rollback crown.svg Spencer (Talk | Edits | Contribs) 05:03, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

And here it seems GEBot updated the price normally, but moved the "LastDate" bracket up a line. Also, on here, GEBot accidentally added a "LastDate" on there. I don't know if this is a bug or not, but I thought I'd just let you know. --Rollback crown.svg Spencer (Talk | Edits | Contribs) 00:48, 10 March 2009 (UTC)
The LastDate bug has been fixed, but GEBot won't be running again until it gets more testing. ~Nightgunner5 talkTrans 02:12, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

GEBOt[edit source]

You are breaking articles layout by deleting carriage returns. Also GEBot hasn't been approved yet as far as I can see - yet you are running it daily against all items not just those over a week old as you stated. I think you should stop until you have approval. Also we can look at making the bots work together. Rich Farmbrough, 11:52 9 March 2009 (GMT).

Fletching on zero gold[edit source]

Hi Ben, I know you may not have been serious in the CC but I wanted to write another section of Skills on Zero Gold and I took your advice to do fletching next. If you want, take a look at my first shot at it User:Tollerach/RuneScape_on_zero_gold/Skills/Fletching. I have also written for FM and WC, the rest are just stubs right now. Check it out and let me know what you think. Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 21:21, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

Monkey[edit source]

Sorry chap, don't think I can get you that one. I can't summon it, and it would be hard to get someone's for a GIF.

Wiped a page[edit source] Rich Farmbrough, 04:21 17 March 2009 (GMT).

And another, wyvern bones. Can you stop your bot running immediately please. Administrator Hurston (T # C) 16:18, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
I've added code to prevent it from updating pages with less than five total characters in the update. The only thing I can think of to cause this would be a loss of connection while GEBot is downloading a page. ~Nightgunner5 talkTrans 16:49, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
Also, it cleared the dark cavalier page. Just to let you know. --~MuzTalk 19:49, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

Rollback[edit source]

I have granted you rollback to help you clean up GEBot faster. Remember on only use it on obvious vandalism (or GE bot's mistakes). Quest map icon.png Laser Dragon Task map icon.png 19:37, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

ROBOTS TAKING OVER THE WORLD!!!1!!!1!!!one!!1!!!!!eleven!!!![edit source]

Why is ol' GEBot revolting? Why don't you just turn off his updates and try'n figure out the problem? How many pgaes has that bot... er... updated? 19:49, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

The pages I was reverting were from a glitch that was fixed two days ago. ~Nightgunner5 talkTrans 19:50, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
Two days ago? And you were still reverting them? What, did he mess up 500 pages or something?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Dave Lopo (talk) on 13:56, March 19, 2009.
I hadn't started reverting them until that day. If I counted correctly, there were only 55 edits I reverted. ~Nightgunner5 talkTrans 20:10, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Would you like to hear a storey?[edit source] It says that storey is the correct spelling :| -- 19:29, 20 March 2009 (UTC) OOOOOOOOH. I'll edit the spelling guide to specify that then. -- 19:32, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Catching vandalism[edit source]


Please check history of Exchange:Granite crab pouch to see if you can avoid perpetuating strange stuff like was introduced by on May 3rd. --   For Camelot!  Zang! talk  My health! 21:40, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

I didn't make that. GEBot simply updates pages. It's up to the users of the wiki to prevent vandalism. ~Nightgunner5 talkTrans 21:45, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Table centering[edit source]

Hi, 2+2=4 told me I gotta ask you how to make tables appear in the center of the screen 'cause he doesn't know it. Is there any way how to do this ? 2+2 supposed writing allign="center" but he's not sure about it... Can you pleeeease help me ?

Oh, cabbage![edit source]

Your GEBot is making a mistake in relation to cabbages. It is putting the GE price of Draynor cabbages (GE Item ID 1967) in the price field of the normal Cabbage (GE Item ID 1965). Here's the history of the Cabbage, you can see its been doing this for quite a while (look at the comments of user submitted prices) --Psycho Robot 18:42, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

The problem was that both the draynor cabbage and the normal cabbage had the same wiki page in my database. I've fixed it now. ~Nightgunner5 talkTrans 19:00, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Raw Beef[edit source]

I believe there is an error in the price listed by GEBot on the Raw Beef, 280gp. The GE price is 68gp. I have looked at the history and is seems others are correcting the price to only then be changed again to 280 by GEBot. Can you look into this? Strength-icon.png Hammer2092 Time |KOTA Bandos godsword.png 15:06, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

You'll need to set up Exchange:Raw undead beef. ~Nightgunner5 talkTrans 15:27, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

GEBot[edit source]

I may be wrong, but it seems that your bot is using the name of the item to update exchange pages in preference to ItemID, causing problems such as this. Administrator Hurston (T # C) 12:27, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

It only uses the item name to find the page in the first place. The problem is that there's no way to find an item by ID on the wiki. After the problem is found, it's a simple fix: [2] 14:37, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
Same problem here. The "Lookup current price" link on the page takes the user to the correct RuneScape page. So, the bot should be able to follow THAT link, using the ItemID found in the Exchange page. SmackBot updates correctly, GEBot/MarketBot does not. Please fix this soon.   az talk   16:15, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

GEbot for Dutch RS wiki[edit source]

Hi Nightgunner5,

I see you've got an very handy bot running on this wiki, and I'd like to ask you something. I'm an administrator on the Dutch Runescape Wikia, and we would like to ask you if you would allow us, and if you can help us to get an GEbot on the Dutch RuneScape wiki. We would really appreciate it. I don't know if it's even possible to use a bot on 2 wiki's... But maybe an seperate one. But anyway, we, of the Dutch Runescape Wikia, would really appreciate it if you could help us or even give us an bot.

Note: I really don't know anything about bots xD. Nor does any other members.


Unfortunately, the items on the Dutch RS Wiki have a completely different format, so it would require a complete rewrite of the bot. If you would like the source code of GEBot, however, you can email me at [3]. 14:24, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
Hi, we just updated our entire system, and now it's identical to this Exchange, we have áll Exchange: pages that are here, and thus, it should work now. So I was wondering, could you make your bot work on two Wiki's at the same time, or can I activate it (however, I have no idea how that works, so I'll need help). Thanks, Mark (Tedjuh10) - Talk 14:06, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Hey, what happened to GEBot I thought I hadn't saw it in a while and I checked, GEBot hasn't ran since June 27th. - TehKittyCatTalk Wikian-Book 02:47, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Hello, may I have the source code to GEBot; I would like to have a backup solution for in the case the only remaining GEMW updating bot stops running(which it has now). - TehKittyCatTalk Wikian-Book 22:28, October 29, 2009 (UTC)
